Joey Barton on the Reds, speaking to Bristol Live: "There is no tougher opposition for us at this moment in time. They are really good at what they do. Duffo, from Burnley, is 5-3-2, but it’s very much 4-4-2 when they come hunting the ball, they are really aggressive with the numbers, the distances are very good between the units, they set great pressing traps and if you don’t figure them out, they can make life incredibly uncomfortable for you.
"We found out when we were up there and we lost 3-0, Derby are a good side and they found out when they went there at the weekend. We have to stick to our gameplan and our strategy."
The gaffer's take
"They've had a dicky patch, but I don't think they've struggled. They're a newly-promoted team and right until Christmas they were right in the play-off mix. It is difficult when you do come up because the games catch up with you in terms of quality of the squad etc. With Joey, they seem to have totally bought into what they do. They had a big result last weekend, there's no getting away from that."
We look forward to seeing you all in Bristol on Saturday and wish you a safe journey down!
